Ric Rac Rose Packaging!

Ric Rac Rose Hairclips
Remember these Ric Rac Rose Hairclips from yesterday?  Today, I have them packaged, ready for gift giving!  Before we get to that, I wanted to say, I hope you are having a Terrific Tuesday! Every Tuesday my husband and I go to our church and volunteer at our after school program. We open the doors, help with homework, play games, listen, and serve all a hot meal!  Knowing these kids are safe, warm, and fed each Tuesday makes it terrific indeed! 

Packaged Ric Rac Rose Hairclips
Lets get to the packages!  Glassine bags, wrapped with ribbon and embellished with a chipboard lettered heart!  I covered each letter with Lost & Found Blush Paper from My Minds Eye.  The initials of the first letters of the honey pie's names who will get these roses! Designer paper, adhesive pearls, all ribbon, and string are found at The Stamp Simply Store!

SU Slot Punch
I attached each hair clip to a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Die cut piece of white card stock.  I slightly pinched the middle of die cut and used my SU slot punch as shown to create an opening to slide the metal hair clip into.

Backside of slot punched die cut
Backside view of the hair clip attached to die cut.  The die cut easily slides into glassine bag.  I folded top over, used the SU slot punch again to create a hole for the ribbon to life through!

Thanks so much for all your kind comments about the ric rac roses!  I really love creating with a needle and thread!  And hope to do more of that!  Take good care and make it a Terrific Tuesday!
